This super fun unit is jam-packed with retell crafts, math printables, writing prompts, word wall cards, a STEM activity, and so much more! This resource is full of everything you need to study this ever popular poem.

My students have always loved the 5 Little Pumpkins poem. I created a resource that is full of everything you could possibly want when studying this ever popular poem. I've included 3 different versions of the poem so that you can read it and include any of the activities with the word "witch", "bats", or "leaves" since some teachers do not study Halloween.

The unique paper towel craft will really help students commit this poem to memory.

Please watch the FREE video in my TPT store to hear a more detailed explanation of everything you will receive!
